Krista & Daniel's Wedding with 4x8 Jumbo Photo Strips

Looking for something to set your photo booth business apart from the competition?  How about offering 4×8 Jumbo Photo Booth Strips? With the DNP DS80 printer, Breeze Photobooth software (or similar) and 8×12 media you can print 3-4×8 strips in about 50 seconds.  The 4×8 is almost 3 times the size of a traditional 2×6 photo strip and the third strip is very handy when the bride wants to keep a copy for herself – now there are still 2 copies to give out to guests. You can charge a premium for these jumbo photo strips and set your photo booth apart from the competition.

3 photos easily fit in the 4×8 space and are almost wallet size.  Still lots of room for headers, footers, background and overlays.DNP DS80 photo printer The DNP DS80 is our best selling 8×10 dye-sublimation printer.

    No, the printer and driver only do 3-4×8 on 8×12, it cannot do just 1.

    I am going to test dslrbooth software to see if this could be done. Anyone know or could share there experience using the dslrbooth.

    I love the jumbo strip… You should see how everyone is excited over the size at the events.

    Bill,
    Can you create the large prints using Darkroom Photobooth software.

    Yes the paper is on a roll but the ribbon is in 8×10 or 8×12 panels. If it only did 2-2×8 on an 8×10 it would still be using an entire 8×10 at .92¢. That is why I am saying 5-2×8 since if you using part of an 8×10 you might as well use it all. Please remember the 2-2×6 is on a 4×6 because the ribbon is in 4×6 panels.

    Not sure why your saying 5-2×8 since the paper is on a roll and it will cut at 4-6-8-10-and 12. It only needs the same type of update that the ds 40 got so it will cut at 2.

    The DS 80 will cut a 4 x 8 only if you set it in preferences – advanced. I do have a couple questions though. First is the firmware update for 2x6s from a DS 40 all set, and second is DNP planning on a similar update for 2X8s from the DS80?

    I did this last year on Oct 31 for a Halloween party. I have the Mitsubishi cp3800.

    It was really nice! I still feel the cp3800 is heavy but these jumbo prints are amazing!!!

    Mike, from another blog post answer.
    “It has been in Beta for a little while. We do not have a copy of it. One of the issues, similar to the UPDR200, is the strips do not always fall out the printer after cutting. DNP is working on a possible retrofit of the print exit. DNP had planned on an earlier release and the “first part of June” may still not be accurate. We will keep you informed, it will be on our blog, Facebook and website.”

    Great idea. Those are definitely unique prints and will leave a lasting impression. Any word on the new print driver for DS-40?

    Greg,
    In the driver, go into (Printing) Preferences and click on Advanced. In Advanced click on (8×4)x3. Depending on your software, you may have to set Copy Count to 3.
